Transitions, Knitting and Otherwise

October 20, 2011 at 1:38 pm 2 comments

I woke up this morning to this…

Gorgeous colors, and frost on the windows. It’s a perfect day to transition out of a pattern and start in on a cuddly wool sweater. The pattern I’ve been entrenched in is now in the hands of my capable tech editor, Katherine Vaughan. All I have to do is get a photo shoot done, and figure out a name. I’m terrible at names… any suggestions? (There just might be a free pattern for someone who gives me a good idea.)

Another large transition is coming up for me and my husband.

You’re seeing correctly, there are TWO little ones in there! This was them at 8 weeks, but now we’re almost 14 weeks, and they look a lot more like babies now. Needless to say, this blog may be a little slow in the March/April timeframe of next year.

So, fair warning, I will be doing a lot of baby knitting. Especially since we won’t be finding out what the genders are. That means I’ll be knitting two boy versions and two girl versions of everything! It gets a little overwhelming if I think too hard about it. I feel like everytime I go to Ravelry, I’m completely overwhelmed by the number of patterns available, and how relatively few of them that I actually get excited about. I guess I’m picky, I really don’t mind making simple things as gifts, but these are MY babies, and I guess the standard is higher. What are your favorite baby patterns?

    I love coming up with names. Do you want to email me a picture and I’ll try to think of one?
